So my boyfriend's neighbor has these garden gnomes in their front yard, one of them being a gnome riding a snail, and it never ceases to amuse me. So while I was browsing Joanns I was super excited to find out some of their seasonal stuff on sale consisted of gnomes, one who also happened to be riding a snail. So of course I bought it with the intent to re-paint it and make it all happy and neon colored.
But as per usual I had a little crafting accident. My cat was having one of her super hyperactive moments, and decided to run through the wet paint, and run all over my apartment as well as knocking my half way finished gnome into wet black paint. Not too much damage was done but I had a hard time trying to cover the black paint on his face with the skin tone color. Instead I covered it with bright red and turned him into a zombie gnome
riding a neon colored snail.
